Feel free to post your grooviest jazz tunes. :cheers:

Here's Art Pepper from one of his later albums... playing as soulfully as the best of the African-Americans, following years of incarceration due to his heroin habit... what a tragic waste of a remarkable talent.

The Summer Knows (1976) from Art's album 'The Trip' on the Contemporary label.

Art Pepper, alto sax; George Cables, piano; David Williams, bass; Elvin Jones, drums.


... and here is the title track 'The Trip'


Best played with the volume cranked up to the max. :)

Just need to add, these tunes come across as a bit dreary on a low bit youtube clip. To really appreciate their beauty, one needs to hear the full lossless version on a proper hi-fi set-up. :)
